There are a quite a few possible causes for running out of memory on a device causing the Low Memory Manager to kick in and a few have been touched on here already. Here is a link that describes the Low Memory Manager and how it works. Below is a short list of the common casues:
- Extra themes loaded => remove unused or extra themes using Application Loader
- Extra lauguages loaded => remove unused or extra lauguages using Application Loader
- Extra applications loaded => remove unused or extra lauguages using Application Loader
- Media (pictures, music, video, etc) saved on device memory rather than SD card => move all media to the SD card
There are a couple other less common solutions that will help prevent you from running into this issue in the first place:
- Lower the reserved picture memory setting:
- Ensure that the Browser Cache is cleared to preserve device memory:
For the complete listing and solutions for all of the above check here.

To the users saying it's my fault this happens because I took "too many pictures", hey, 8830 has no camera so sorry, wrong answer.
I have to do a battery pull at least once every 3 days due to whatever memory leak is in 4.2.2. There is NO DOUBT there is something worng with 4.2.2, I'm not the only one. Why RIM refuses to address it is a mystery. Read more on this subject and extensive long term efforts to troubleshoot it at: http://www.berryreview.com/2008/03/11/rant-my-blac

Does anyone know how to move files from one folder to another on a Blackberry 8300 Curve?
Also, when you want to delete a ring tone from your Blackberry that you no longer require or are sick of, how come when you highlight the track and press delete, the song title remains but has no track attached to it?
That's very strange. Does anyone know how to get rod of the track all together?
Thanks for your help in advance.

Because of this issue I try to keep my free memory as high as possible. When I do a hard reset on my Pearl 8100, I have over 38MB free. This is with 10 third-party applications installed. When I have lots of e-mails and reboot then it might be around 32-35MB.
There is an excellent post on the BlackBerry Forums (written by moderator John Clark) that shows how to maximize free memory by removing preloaded media, unused languages, etc. I have listed the link below. This might be the best option until the issue is resolved:
